With funding from the Lottery and Leader plus, the Development Trust has been able to commission an architect to draw up plans to renovate the old saw mill for the Horticulture Centre and growing area on the old tennis courts. These plans have now been submitted to the Planning Department with consent expected soon. A stage two application to Lottery Community Spaces for £250,000 has been lodged with a decision expected in early February. Meanwhile work continues on applying for further grants to round the figure up to £500,000.
